RE: Jack Porter
Yvette, that is all I need! It shows that you have lots of family information and photos to add. I will certainly transfer.

I remember you from years ago; I believe I did photo requests for you.

The one thing that I got tired of: I transferred memorials to people who said "that's my aunt" (or cousin, or whatever) and months later I looked back at the memorials and nothing had been changed or added. No links, no photos. It just seemed like people wanted to own every member of their family tree but not do anything with them.

So I started adhering to the 4-generation guideline. Unless I'm out there taking photos for you (or anyone). In that case, when I find family members that are buried next to the one you're looking for, I memorialize them, with grave photos, and then transfer them automatically.

I have also transferred to people who sponsor memorials. No relationship necessary. If someone is kind enough to sponsor, I let them take control over the memorial.

Anyway, I'm going over there this weekend so I'll get a photo of his name plaque. He is actually located in an underground vault beneath the Capistrano Gardens Memorial Panels. That is a non-visitation area, but folks usually purchase a place on the memorial panels for a nameplate and a vase for flowers.

Let me know if you have anyone else at Inglewood. We are a bit behind in photo requests right now, but I always put special ones on my list if requested.

Take care,

Hi Yvette. I don't mind transferring to reasonably close relatives if you have information or photos to add. But when people don't have anything to add, I don't see the point. So most of the time I transfer within the 4 direct-generation guideline. So tell me, do you have some good stuff to add? Or at least some links? Would you like a photo of his name plaque? I'm willing to work with you.

Best regards,

Arynne Simon
Your memorial for her is 70380166

I'm sorry that I have to send her bio info to you this way, but my 'catsha' isn't working...

Arynne Abeles Simon, 85, most recently of Los Angeles, passed away on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 8, 2011, after a prolonged decline following a stroke. She was born July 23, 1926, in the Bronx, at home. Her father, Peter Abeles, was a New York State Senator and later, a judge - appointed to the bench by then New York mayor Fiorella LaGuardia. Arynne's mother was Minerva Lobell Abeles, of Minneapolis, a gifted public speaker and homemaker.

Arynne studied the violin throughout her young adulthood and was accomplished enough to attend Julliard's High School of Music and Art in Manhattan and was the first-chair violinist in the senior orchestra. She graduated from New York University with degrees in Business and Early Childhood Education and then found work in the fashion industry as part of Macy's cutting-edge executive training program.

When her son Sheldon became of school age, Arynne received her teaching credentials and found joy working with elementary school students on Long Island.
After moving to Washington, DC, she studied at Catholic University under a faculty involved in the development of new human interaction principles called Assertive Behavior.

She later taught the subject at the college level, privately, to the Healthcare industry, and to executives and management in various corporate settings. She served as Director of Public Relations for WMAL radio and television, the ABC affiliate in Washington. During that time, responding to a request from the White House, WMAL loaned Arynne to work with the executive staff serving President Lyndon Johnson.

She studied classical drawing and painting full-time at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington under Edmund Archer and became a highly accomplished and well-respected portrait painter. Then, combining her love of art with her teaching skills, she created Corcoran's first-ever art school for young children.

After moving to Southern California in the early 70s with her husband, Bill Simon, and daughter, Victoria, she created, edited and promoted a newspaper called "The Learning Scene," dedicated to exposing the local population to all manner of learning opportunities, both institutional and private.

Arynne then obtained her Ph.D. in psychology, and launched a new career, offering her services as a personal coach, speechwriter, speech coach and team-builder to the burgeoning computer industry. Largely based in the Silicon Valley area, her wide array of clients included leading American semiconductor and computer companies as well as government offices, political leaders, and network newscasters. In England, she provided executive coaching to retail organizations, members of Parliament, and the Mayor of Westminster (London).

Arynne authored the book "Playing Life from Center Court-How to Live without Anger and Fear." In addition, she produced two audio cassette lecture series, "Assertive Behavior," and "Assertive Sex."

A great many people speak of how deeply their hearts were touched and how dramatically their lives were changed by Arynne, including many who only knew her through a single training session. Those lucky enough to have known her say they still live by and teach others principles inspired by her unique and positive approach to life and business.

She is survived by her husband, William L. Simon; daughter, Victoria M. Simon; son, Sheldon Bermont; and grandchildren, Vincent and Elena Bermont. They will treasure the memory of her glowing smile.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, June 17, 2011, at 5pm at The Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, Ca. Published in the Pomerado News on May 19, 2011.

Cherry Point Cemeteries

Here is a link to the document I was talking about. It has a lot of extra information about the cemeteries and grave sites. The study was done in 1985, so some markers that are no longer there may have been present when the survey was conducted.

Ricci Byrd
Hi Yvette- I was greatly helped by your
entry for Ricci Byrd!! I am also interested
in genealogy. Recently Ricci's 3rd wife, who was my cousin, Betty Turner Alston Byrd, passed away. I inherited all her photos including an old photo of a young woman. I believe she may be Ricci Byrd's mother, Carrie Alice Douglas Cooper Byrd. Could you write and tellme if you have any more information about her?The photo was taken by a studio in St. Paul Minnesota around 1905. I have found Carrie
in the census records of 1920, (state) 1925
and 1930. No mention of Minnesota.

Please write me back! Gigi
